  2. 98_G00_ The Gurgenidze Setup (B06/B15)
    This line is known as the <"Gurgenidze System"> (Bukhuti Gurgenidze) and can be reach by several different move-orders, probably the most common being <1. e4 g6 2. d4 Bg7 3. Nc3 c6> but playing it through a caro-kann is also valid. Though I would probably prefer using the first one since black keeps himself the most flexible there.

    Basically this line is like a hybrid between the modern-defence and the caro-kann. Black intends to fianchetto his bishop then strike in the center with d7-d5, also depending a bit on what white does black might transpose into a usual pirc/modern by playing d7-d6 where the move c6 is almost always useful.

    It's not really such a bad opening for black and there are master-level players which uses it regularly however white is believed to have an advantage in a couple of lines. This system fits the kind of players which likes playing slow closed (slightly cramped) positions where you're playing for a kind of square-control. It's also commonly used by players which likes to avoid theory since:

    1. Black's play is very straight forward and in general you can play this way without having to memorize almost anything. This is possible since in the positions arising from this opening is more about understanding key ideas because of the closed nature of the positions usually arising.

    2. There's not that much theory on it.

    "Gurgenidze created a system combining the kingside fianchetto with ...c6 and ...d5. Bukhuti Gurgenidze, a grandmaster from Georgia, developed the idea of combining the Caro-Kann and the Modern.< By playing ...d5, Black gained space in the center and avoided many of the dangers of the typical Modern Defense position. <This was a safer system, with an emphasis on positional play on the light squares, but with somewhat less counterplay for Black.>>"

  3. An Advantage in Space
    These are the greatest games which were won in the manner of a boa constrictor. There is no greater joy, in my opinion, than pushing your opponent's pieces off the board.

    I am slowly creating this collection as I read it with page numbers associated with the recent Nunn Algebraic edition . The current collections on this book in Chessgames.com are missing a handful of games. I am sending in games complete scores for publication as I find them. I am currently reading this book and invite others to join along.
